The shift to clean energy has opened a window of opportunity for energy metals, such as Lithium. For clean energy to be useful to society, the efficient storage of energy is paramount. Advanced batteries allow our cars to run without using gasoline and batteries allow renewable energy to be stored when the sun isn't shining and the wind isn't blowing.
In recent years, lithium-ion batteries have emerged as the most widely used choice for energy storage. Simply put, energy metals, such as lithium, graphite, cobalt, uranium and copper, are metals used in the creation or storage of energy.
